Here’s a luscious chocolate lip gloss recipe from our 517 Spa and Beauty Gifts To Make book. I’ve made it several times and it’s especially great in the summer when we feel dried out from sun or sand. Actually, it’s pretty great in the winter, too, when it’s so much drier.
It’s all natural, wonderful for your lips – and tastes great. I’m almost out of mine so I’ll be making more of this in the next month or so and will let you know about pictures. But if you don’t want to wait, try it now. I always make enough for my daughter and myself but now my granddaughter wants “her very own”. She’s 4 and I’m happy to oblige.
* 1 1/2 teaspoons grated cocoa butter
* 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
* 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil (open a couple of vitamin E capsules)
* 1/4 teaspoons grated chocolate or 3 small chocolate chips
+ In a double boiler heat the cocoa butter, coconut oil, and vitamin E oil until melted.
+ Stir in the chocolate chips and keep stirring until melted and well blended.
+ Pour into small container and allow to cool before using. I’ve found small, round jars at Walmart and that’s what I use. I would prefer glass but all the jars I’ve found are either too large or too deep.
